Awhile ago the ice maker started slowing down and then whenever it would
dump ice the ice would freeze to the bottom of the container and after
awhile it would just be a big block of ice cubes frozen together. I tried
adjusting the temp up and down to no avail. Then I cleaned the coils and
all seemed to be fine again. Ice cubes were coming out normal. It's a
couple of weeks later and I am having the same problem again. Ice maker
working very slowly and cubes just freezing together. Coils still seem
pretty clean. any suggestions.
If the cubes are melting then freezing together, the temp in the freezer is
warming up then dropping again. That doesn't sound like an icemaker problem.
You need to determine why the temp is spiking then going back below
I have small thermometers (kmart $1 each 20 yrs ago) on the
back wall of both the freezer and frig. tune the two dials
so freezer is at 0 and frig is at 40.
tend to check them when i open the doors.
you might check your defroster timer and heater, that can
make it too warm like described if it has problems. a bad
light switch can do the same - that 40W frig bulb really can
overpower the compressor.
